Plantain Soup

Plantain Soup (1/10/19) *****

2lbs green plantains
1 carrot, diced
1 onion, chopped
6 garlic cloves, diced 
16oz chicken broth
1 Tbsp lemon juice
Salt and pepper to taste

* Peel, slice and cut plantains into 1/4” slices and add to the Instant Pot.
* Add broth, carrots, garlic, parsley, thyme, onion, salt and pepper. Put the lid on, turn the valve to sealing and select Manual, high pressure, for 20 minutes.
* It will take about 40 minutes total, including the time it takes to build and release pressure. Once the cook time is over, do a natural release for 10 minutes and then a quick release. You don't want to let it all release at once or it could sputter and foam.
* When the lid is off, turn the Instant Pot to saute. 
* Add lemon juice and stir into the soup.  Break apart any large plantain pieces with a fork. 

* Cook for a couple of minutes and stir until thickened. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve.
* Serves 3-4
